Clarice HPMA nominees. As many of you hopefully found out yesterday, Matt & Kim and Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights will be our special guests at this year's Houston Press Music Awards showcase all along Washington Avenue Saturday, August 7. Tickets go on sale next Friday at houstonpress.com. Just thought we'd mention that again, mostly because a) we want all of you to show up; and b) we need some copy to sandwich around that pretty lady to your right.
Anyhow, the number of nominees who have now sent in their MP3s keeps climbing a little more each day. Hell, we figure we may have about half of them in now. But we could always use more, so the rest of you please stop dragging your feet and send them to email@example.com. You'll be glad you did.
So today, just in time for the July 4 weekend, we are proud to bring you five more. Without further ado - OK, just a little - here are Balaclavas (Best LP/CD, Roman Holiday), Glenna Bell (Best Folk), Giant Princess (Best EP, Mexican Easter), Last Soul Descendents (Best R&B/Funk/Soul), Strange Days (Best Cover/Tribute Band) and the Trey Clark Band (Best Country; Best Male Vocals, Trey Clark; Best Guitarist, Trey Clark; Best Bassist, Mike Maples).
